Abstract

This report includes a feasibility report and design proposal concerned with the broadening and deepening of technology assessment (TA) in Europe through training courses. The conceptual design and functional requirements of such courses are described and a number of recommendations made. The concepts of the training courses were derived from first principles, but largely based on a survey of sources of experts and expertise in TA. The outcome of the survey illustrates the variety of perceptions of TA and TA activity in the EU countries, and highlights the issue of cultural influence. The report concludes with a dossier of specifications for the preparation of special workshops and a summer school, proposed for 1996; these are the next steps envisaged toward the realisation of an EU network in the field of TA.
